AMAZING!!! The food and service were PERFECT! This place just become my favorite spot for a skirt steak! My friend chose this spot for her birthday and restaurant week. We are so happy we came here as they made my friend's night special! The manager was super sweet and honored the restaurant week promo eve though it was after 7 o'clock. The food and drinks were incredible. The four of us enjoyed the restaurant week prefix menu. We had the French onion soups and wedge salads. For our entree the three of us had the skirt steak and pork chops. The food was delicious. The skirt steak was one of the best skirt steaks I had!!! Juicy with lots of flavor. The portion were huge and very filling, well worth the price. We all took leftovers home. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The place has a nice modern look. The menu is very big with lots of choices for everyone! Overall I love everything about this place!

Went out with 3 couples and service and good was great! My wife had the stuffed shrimp and I had the short rib(part of restaurant week) and both were delicious. Service was perfect and they sat us timely for our reservation at a nice table off to the side. Couldn’t have asked for a better dinner.

Arrived at 6:55 for a 7pm reservation and the table was not set or ready for us.
There were plenty of tables available but no one was around to set it up for us.
We waited about 15 minutes for the hostess to find someone to set the table.
Waited another 15 minutes for a waiter before I had to get up and ask the hostess to have a waiter come over.
Took another 15 minutes to get the drinks we ordered to the table after ordering them, they switched the waiter on us about 4 times so each new one had no idea of what to do or how to take care of us.
Seemed their was no one there that would be considered a manager or anyone to give direction to the staff who were all very young people with no experience on how to run a restaurant or bar.

Food was delicious. Service was slow - it was restaurant week and I am not sure they were prepared for the crowd. However I have been there several times before and service was excellent those times.

I went for the restaurant week specials. Beware, everything has an up charge and you spend more than the proposed special price. Food was good, nothing special.

The short ribs and stead salad were OUTSTANDING. Our server was great. The only down fall was waiting for 20 minutes past our reservation time and it is such a loud restaurant- thankfully we had a quieter spot in the back.

We're new to Saint James and were looking for a romantic restaurant. Chop Shop nailed it! Excellent food and drinks, attentive servers, and people friendly staff. We had the filet mignon and it was delicious!!! . I highly recommend this restaurant. We will be returning often.

We had a very nice dinner. The service and food was very good. We had no wait for a table and were never rushed. All food was presented nicely and was tasty. Some of the entrees included short ribs, skirt steak and double pork chop. As I looked around plates were pretty much clean but portions were on the larger side. Will be going back.

I’m a regular, and last night was another example of Chop Shop’s excellent service and food. Wait staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating - even turning down the overhead lights for me and my date. Their food is always good and portions are great. The wine list is also very good/ love their wines by the glass. We will certainly be back.

Went to chop shop for a birthday dinner. The menu had such a huge variety of items from pasta to fish to steaks and actually did all of them well. Everything we ordered was delicious with pretty good size portions. Service was also excellent. Items (especially drinks) were pretty expensive, but definitely had value to them. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back!!

Nice people. Excellent food. Amiable service in a good looking, upscale bar restaurant. The only thing we didn't love was the noise. Very high noise levels. Our table by the window in the bar was tolerable, but I cannot imagine how the folks in the restaurant could hear themselves think. I would not go back there on a Friday or Saturday night, but would certainly go back for lunch or on a weeknight.

We enjoyed our meal, but waited a very long time to be seated ~reservations were for 7:45pm & were not seated for at least 45min! Then waited at least 45min for the food to come! Wasn’t happy about that! Will not return on a Friday night😡, but might try again on a different night. 🤷‍♀️

Food is always superb Tuna entree and Short ribs our favorites, but Everything is delicious and well presented. Service is great .only negative would be the noice level in dining room Bar is right next to dining room and the chatter seems to carry over, but we don’t mind that atmosphere but if you want quiet low key atmosphere it won’t be for you. If you want great food and don’t care about noise,, this restaurant is highly recommended

Love the Chop Shop! Food is great. Love the menu, whether you’re looking for a great burger, steak or pasta dish. Their short ribs and their skirt steak are A#1. The short rib grilled cheese is to die for!

We like to space out our trips to Chop Shop so we appreciate it more every time we’re there. We love the dim lighting and the decor, but the food is hands down the best! My go-to is ALWAYS their skirt steak (medium rare) because it comes over a bed of golden hash browns with asparagus cut up and is topped with crispy onions (my favorite) They cut the steak for you so it’s just easy to get right into once it’s in front of you. Their marinade is out of this world, and I always pair my dish with a glass of Malbec. We come here for date night and special occasions, and from start to finish we’re so pleased with the service and quality this restaurant brings. We will always recommend it to friends who are looking for a great nearby spot they haven’t been to, and we’ll always continue to return!
